DWARAKA - NAGESWARA JYOTIRLINGA

Supriya, of course, was saved but not the people; for Daruki, the wife of Daruka having obtained innumerable boons from Mother Uma, continued asurakrityas more barbarously than before and turned herself a veritable form of Death in her Rakshasa physical frame. Sympathising the people, Siva manifested Himself as Jyotirlinga and lifted Saranagathas en masse. At their instance, and by the intense power of devotion of Supriya, Lord Siva has been abiding in this place to protect devotees as desired. Later a suitable temple was built and regular worship was conducted that alone is acting as rakshakavacha for the people. The Jyotirlinga that emerged is still receiving all types of prayer services in a well-built temple near Dwaraka, the earthly abode a Lord Krishna. It is on the way to Beti Dwaraka. This linga is called by another name of Nageswar or Naganathaswamy.
